Bradford Airport Gets State Grant Money

Bradford Regional Airport will be getting more than $1 million in state grant money.

The $1.1 million will go toward building and expanding multi-tenant facilities.

“Providing individuals with access to safe and reliable transportation across our Commonwealth is a core responsibility of State government,” said Senator Joe Scarnati. “I’m pleased that we are investing in Pennsylvania’s smaller regional airports, which are crucial to transportation, jobs, economic development and quality of life, particularly in rural areas.”

“Investing in our airports is a significant part of creating a strong transportation infrastructure across Pennsylvania, and will provide our communities with an important resource to draw in new businesses and local jobs,” Scarnati said.

Governor Tom Corbett made the announcement today. The grants are distributed through the Capital Budget/Transportation Assistance Program, which is funded through state capital bond dollars in the General Fund budget.
